AGB (20) - Québec, Quebec, - MAR 14, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2011 Schlussel is an "ok" altbier, but despite being very drinkable, there is nothing very hoppy to speak of and not really malty either, It lacks a little something that would make you say "I want another one right now", just like the Uerige Alt is, for example. The place is beautiful though, definitly worths a stop if you’re near Dusseldorf (along with all the other Altbier breweries!)

One of the better altbeers but not that appealing to me... Could be better a bit to bitter

adamnowek (1429) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2016
Dark chestnut colour with a soapy head. Aroma is burnt toast. Taste is roasted chestnuts and malts, but it’s ultimately a bit thin. Not the best.

Clear ruby brownish color with thin foam head. Light nutty nose. Mild earthy taste with a discreet carbonation and a smooth mouth feeling. The aftertaste is calm and worthy.
